Buy swim fins with confidence

We respect your privacy and order information security.

Shinfin Pty. Ltd. (Shinfin) is committed to the security and privacy of your order, your credit card details and your personal information. Shinfin is bound by Australian company and privacy laws. Shinfin’s Australian Business Number (ABN) is 14 895 941 137.

Secure credit/debit card details

Your credit/debit card details do not go to the shinfin.com website. Instead, the credit/debit card details that you enter on the payment page are first encrypted in your own computer browser, using the international SSL security standard. Then they go direct from your computer browser to the secure eWAY payment gateway for bank processing. So your encrypted credit/debit card details completely bypass the shinfin.com website. This is fully compliant with PCI DSS 2.0 (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).
